Two colleagues out of St Louis, Josh Anyan, and Chris DeGroat, recently created n3rds.com – a website for matching up tech industry jobs with candidates. They gave me a heads up, and I was pretty impressed – as I generally am by these two. I thought I’d give them a call out on my site in hopes to send them what little traffic I can muster. Here is a review:
n3rds.com aims to be low friction, my entire experience on the site was just a few minutes, here are some highlights:
- The login system is all via the linkedIn API ( how suitable ). This makes it super easy to sign up, and connect with the most relevant professional social network out there – NOT your facebook.
- You’re immediately asked a few questions about locale, skillsets, salary ranges that interest you.
- Next, your taken to a listing of matching jobs – where you can pick and choose what interests you and go from there.
- As new jobs that match your skills come into the system, you are notified. This is a nice way to keep a pulse on opportunities, without throwing your resume on the market.
n3rds.com launched a few days ago and is currently in beta. If you’re a recruiter or employer, head on over and toss up a few job postings. It’s free! If you’re a techie, might as well sign up – it’s pretty frictionless, and you never know where you’ll find the next big thing.
Nice work gentlemen.
